earth note 153

By e b bortz

poem

::::::::

there's no running

from the drought

dust storms

wildfires

that eat through

torso & limbs

clearly

the continental shelf

is teetering

.....

appian way models

embody all the pavements

yet to come

severing hands & organs

once connected

in common space

a dark new aura

of ego static & feel-good prophesy

the new gold standard

.....

while the anasazi

built reservoirs

dug out caves cool

in the mountains

designed calendars

from the sun

paths from ancestors

respect

we have yet to learn
